Los Haitises National Park – Samana – Dominican Republic,Northeast of the Dominican Republic, sitting directly below the Samaná Peninsula, is a rugged karst landscape that seems like it came straight out of the Mediterranean. Thirty meter-high rock formations jut out of a vast, emerald-colored bay against a backdrop of densely forested hills. Turkey vultures circle above these giant mounds, while herons and pelicans are perched on the leafy vegetation covering their surface.

Preserved since 1976, Los Haitises – which translates as “highlands” in Taíno – is home to rainforest, mangroves of varying species, over 200 species of birds (it’s a key bird-nesting site and sanctuary), multiple caves, and some of the highest numbers of Taíno petroglyphs and pictographs in the country. Manatees and dolphins also visit the park’s waters regularly. To boot, the life-sustaining role of Los Haitises National Park is as grand as its biodiversity: it’s the main water source for the eastern region of the country. learn more..

Q Excursion to the National park Los Haitises

Excursion to the National park Los Haitises
An absolute MUST : Los Haïtises National Park was once a safe haven for the Taino Indians where they hid out in the many caves which still bear their original pictographs and cave drawings dating back to the beginning of the XVI Century.

Without a doubt the most spectacular of the country's national parks, Los Haïtises is home to a huge variety of endemic flora and fauna and is particularly famous for its bird colonies, including herons, pelicans, frigates, buzzards…

Los Haïtises also boasts the greatest abundance of Caribbean mangroves and the peace and quiet there is incredible. The only sounds are the birds singing… Heaven!

The excursion includes a visit to the 3 main caves, an exploration of 2 different mangroves and of course fishing bird watching.

Refreshments are served on the beach in the company of the park wardens who live there.

Q The Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is the most diverse and enticing country in the Caribbean area.  This country is known worldwide for its beautiful white sand beaches, diverse fauna, ecotourism destinations and the warmth of its people. The capital city is Santo Domingo, rich in culture, dynamic scenery, affordable lifestyle and lavish nightlife. One of the most popular destinations is Punta Cana, located in the East of the country, receiving more than 6 million tourists each year. As an immigrant myself I can honestly say that in the Dominican Republic, life begins again.
